He will be somewhat limited in his transition to the NFL due to his size, but there are many receivers of his stature that have shown the ability to overcome this at the next level. Benjamin has third- to fourth-round value due to his speed, ability to separate and experience as a returner.
The key to his game as a receiver is his ability to get open, and he doesn't shy away from contact despite his stature. He will be a true deep threat at the next level who runs crisp intermediate routes, as well, and can be productive if he gets off the line of scrimmage.
His preference is to be outside on the perimeter, away from contact, which could be his Achilles heel if moved into the slot."
Is a consistent vertical threat who tracks the football well, adjusts to the throw and can go up and make a play when he needs to. Is fluid in the hips as well and exhibits good coordination when running vertical routes. Sells his shoulder fake well, puts his foot in the ground and can accelerate with ease toward daylight.
Also, he exhibits some savvy when trying to beat press coverage off the line. Isn't the most physical of receivers, but does a nice job using his suddenness and slight wiggle to get a corner leaning the wrong way and then just explodes past him down the field.
Is still developing as a route runner and will glide his way into his inward breaking routes. Can be sharp in and out of his breaks underneath, but will slow his feet before his breaks, allowing defenders to drive on the route. Has the fluidity and footwork to improve and is a hard worker, but needs to become a more consistent route runner.
However, to his credit, he has a great feel of getting corners to open up their hips in order to turn and run and snapping off a route under them. Corners are legitimately fearful of his vertical speed and he knows how to get on their hip and then snap the comeback or out route off cleanly and adjust to the throw.
Can pluck the football and adjust to ball off his frame and exhibits good balance and hand eye coordination, but at times just loses concentration and will put the ball on the ground. He's dangerous after the catch, is fluid, quick footed and can make a defender miss and out pace them toward daylight.
Is one of the better return men in the NCAA and should be able to earn a starter role on special teams in the NFL.
Impression: A typical Miami type athlete who has all the tools needs to make plays at the next level. Has a little DeSean Jackson and Titus Young to his game and if he continues to mature could end up playing a similar type role."
Tracks very well over his shoulder and has good hands but is prone to concentration lapses/drops.
Route running needs refinement (doesn’t create consistent separation) and physicality is limited — too easily knocked off his route, is not a strong tackle breaker and is an underpowered blocker.
Smart, coachable, perimeter player and impact punt returner whose speed is his best asset."
While improving his skills, he’s still essentially a track guy playing football who doesn’t catch the ball all that well and drives coaches crazy with physical and mentor errors; he’s also not that big or physical and struggles at times to get off the line of scrimmage and isn’t going to win many jump balls."
